The Prophet's Mosque (Masjid Al-Nabawi)
Madinah Munawarah, Saudia Arabia

The Resting Place of the Messenger of Allah
(Mohammed - Peace Be Upon Him)


Welcome to Virtual Tour of Prophet's Mosque, the place where faith has gathered and adhered, and which became the abode of the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him). Madinah, the sanctuary in which lies the second of the Two Holy Mosques.

A most gracious welcome, gleaming with the gift of culture; a recitation of a journey from the unknown that carries us into the light the illuminates the universe.

Located in Madinah, is The Prophet's Mosque (Masjid Al Nabawi), the second most important mosque in Islam, after the Grand Mosque (Al-Haram), in Makkah Al-Mukarramah. It has a long and important history. The first Muslim community flourished in Madinah. The Muslims, who were persecuted in Makkah, by the Quraish tribe, emigrated to it. When the Prophet (Peace be upon him) himself emigrated to Madinah in 622 A.D., it became the capitol of the emerging Islamic state. Muslims from all over the world visit it, grasping the opportunity afforded them to offer prayers in it and to extend their salutations upon the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him), who is taking rest in the chamber in which he left us. The chamber was next to the mosque at that time, but has since been incorporated into the mosque with a subsequent expansion.
